. thompson: mr. speaker, science is beginning to prevail in the debate over america's natural gas revolution and it's time to begin telling the real story what it means for all americans. just seven years ago america was facing the fact that we would have to import an increasing amount of natural gas to fulfill our domestic demand. today new technologies have enabled us to access previously inaccessible energy resources, and almost overnight america's energy resource picture flipped from deficit to surplus. in the past five years we've become stronger as a nation through the developed of these god-given resources. as a result we are more competitive. from low income to the high tax brackets, everyone is benefiting. the future's bright but only if we educate the half truths and begin telling the real story of america's natural gas revolution. the stories about technology, private sector innovation, investment, financial risk, thousands of new jobs, new competition, new growth, a growing and better standard of living for more americans, lower energy costs, new industries, a revitalized energy
